Energy Bar Breakdown

When I walk into the grocery store, I must admit I get a little overwhelmed by the vast selection of energy bars. I made a nutritional break down comparing some of the popular choices so the decision is easier to make. If you want to see it then

I just discovered these bars recently, and they are the best I've tried. They're called ThinkThin bars and most of them are 240 calories with 20g of protein. 20 grams! I can't get over that 20g thing. Sometimes I just eat 1/2 and save the rest for later. They taste great too, though some might find the texture a little protein bar-ish if that makes sense.

the Mojo bars by Clif are amazing.. but how good are they for you? A meal replacement or just a snack?

I eat all of these every now and then, but I try to stick to eating a piece of fruit, a spoon full of honey, and a vitamin before working out.

some of the reason those are fairly high-cal is because they're peanut butter--another flavor will probably have lower calories

Luna bars are so hard to find where I live, so every time I visit my parents, I stock up at the local health food store.

I love the kind bars, if you haven't tried them you should. My favorite is the fruit & nut in yogurt, they're addictive!

I like Luna Bars, especially the mint chocolate one. But I also love the Power Bar Pria Peanut Butter one. It's so good, it's just not as filling.

I love the original ClifBar but was sad to see them up the sugar content. Now my faves are Luna Sunrise and Clif Nectar. You've got to try the Nectar flavor with chocolate/walnuts/dates. It's amazing and always satisfies my choco-cravings!

Luna bars are the chronic...especially toasted nut and cranberry. Lara bars are awesome and RAW, the only ones that aren't full of artificial ingredients and sugar.

My favorite bars that aren't listed here are the Think Thin bars. They are sugar and gluten free, totally natural, and have 20 grams of protein per bar. And they taste like candy bars. is the website.
